Absence Notification


Absence Notification Form

All student absences need to be reported to the DECS Office either by filling out this form or by calling 916-744-1200.

Please report your child’s absence below:

IS must be requested 3 school days in advance. Please see below for schedule below.

If your Request Day is on…
Monday, IS START DAY = Thursday
Tuesday, IS START DAY = Friday
Wednesday, IS START DAY = Monday
Thursday, IS START DAY = Tuesday
Friday, IS START DAY = Wednesday

(This schedule is considering that each date, from Request Day to IS Start Day is a school day, this schedule does not apply when the range includes school holidays/closures)

We encourage all parents to sign up their child for Independent Study to excuse their child’s absence so the school receives credit.


The last day for Independent Study is Friday, May 10th.
